Here are some other "Wilhelm" coins with zylinder or hat from another auction. They are all different, an indication that they are individuelly hand made.

Sorry for the low quality, but it is scanned from the catalogue.

Hello friends of satiric medals!

 

Here are two additional satiric medals, which are available on UBS auction 73:

This is Emporeur Wilhelm II.

This is the Saxonian King Friedrich August (I have never seen a satiric medal of him, those of Wilhelm II are much more often.)

The full catalogue is available under: (on the right side)

This satirical coin seems to be rare. I have seen this image of Friedrich August (the last Saxonian King) the first time. Mainly Wilhelm II. coins are changed.
